Today is the 4th of July, and for those of us in the US…and maybe even those in the UK who are (or should be by now anyway) quite thankful they are no longer responsible for the crazy people across the pond…we are celebrating Independence Day.
For my family, that consists of a parade in the morning, pool time in the afternoon followed by a barbecue and fireworks in the evening. There isn’t much time leftover for video viewing. However, I suspect I will more than make up for my lack of Duranie-activity today in the coming days ahead. I leave for Chicago tomorrow!
So, while I am cheering on my youngest as she performs in her first parade, or as I’m lounging by the pool—I picked a few videos that reminded me of the fourth of July, or of summer in general because let’s face it—how many Duran Duran videos really have fireworks in them??
New Moon on Monday
This one is obvious, and I’ll be honest: I will use ANY and ALL excuses to play this one.
What Happens Tomorrow
I’m reaching here, and I’ll admit it. I gotta say—I love the stars. 🙂
The sun, the sand, the yacht, the ocean. Summer. 🙂
Save a Prayer
So, a few things with this one. First of all, anything from Live Aid reminds me of summer purely because it took place on July 13th, and I remember it being incredibly hot in LA that day. Secondly, I have noticed that t-shirt of Simon’s being worn by some Italian fans during their tour there, and didn’t realize he wore it for Live Aid. (No, I am not quite that detail oriented, and no, my memory is not that great. Sorry.) Lastly, I think the sentiment of this song and Simon’s words at the beginning are still perfect, even today. We still have much to learn…
Happy Fourth of July to my fellow Americans and Happy Monday to everyone!!
